My check engine light keeps turning on and off at random times. the scanner reading came up P2185 and the guys at advanced auto parts said it must be a specific honda problem possibly with the sensors or something with emissions.

My check engine light comes on stays for quite awhile then goes off for a few days

Hi June,
Well, something is going on. Something, somewhere is intermittent and throwing the error. What happens next is you "pull the codes". A device hooks up to the car's computer and reads what ails it.
However, this often is not the answer, but rather a clue.
For example, a small vacuum leak will cause a partial misfire, and the oxygen sensor may throw an objection. The point is: do keep after it, something is going on and it is never good. But often not a big thing.

What could cause my 2000 plymouth grand voyager engine light to come on

your check engine light going on for a number of reasons

you need a scanner to read your minivan's computer code to direct you in which sensor had failed

if you don't have an obd2 scanner, a local autozone, advance auto parts store will check it FOR FREE

then, post your P#### if the local auto parts store person didn't tell you which sensor or wiring to look for

We just bought vehicle-service engine lightjsut came on. What does it mean

If you take it to your local auto parts store like Autozone or Advance Auto parts they should be able to read your trouble code with a scanner for FREE. Usually when the Check Engine or Service Engine light comes on it means the Vehicle Computer has read something was not right. Good Luck.

Check engine light is on check engine light

Take the vehicle to Auto Zone, advanced Auto parts or o'Rieley's Auto parts and ask them to use their scanner to read the stored Code from the ECM for you.

Service engine soon light keeps comming on

Have had the car serviced lately? Oil change, tune up, things of that nature? It may be time to do that stuff. Does that car have a "Service Engine Soon" light and a "Check Engine" light? If the car has been serviced recently and the "Service Engine Soon" light is coming on, it's because who ever serviced it, did not reset the light. To reset the light, this works on most GM cars, turn the ignition to the "on" position DO NOT START THE CAR!!! Now within 5 seconds push the gas pedal to the floor and release it 3 times. That should reset the light if that don't work, you may want see what it says in the owners manual. Or you may have to take it to a shop. If the "Check Engine" light is coming on then there is a problem with the vehicle and there should be a "code" in the computer. Most auto parts stores will put a scanner on your car and read the codes for free. Those lights are there for a reason, if ignore them your car will let you down.
